i§r6. 

The City of Chicago was organized under the general incorporation act in 
April; 1875, and consequently no election was held in November, 1875; but the per- 
sons then in office held over until May, 1876. Under the new law the city was di- 
vided into eighteen wards.

*NoTE. — The order passed by the City Council, providing- foi' an election for city officers 
under the (new) general incorporation act, omitted all reference to the office of Mayor. Not- 
withstanding this omission, and the apparent absence of any authority, a popular vote was 
taken for Mayor at the election, and Thomas Hoyne received 33,064 votes, 819 scattering. 

The canvass of the returns being made to the Council, the vote given for Mayor was disre- 
garded; but the new Council, at its first meeting, decided to canvass the returns, and, having 
done so, declared Mr. Hoyne duly elected Mayor. 

Mr. Colvin, the incumbent, then declining to yield possession of his office on the plea that he 
was entitled to "hold over" under the law, a reference was had to the courts of law, resulting in 
the virtual failure of each of the contestants to sustain his position. 

In consequence, a special election for Mayor was ordered by the Council, which was held 
July 12, 1876, at which Monroe Heath was duly elected. 

fChas. Tarnow was elected to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of J. H. Hildreth.

Mayor's Office, ) 
April 11th, 1898. f 

To the Honorable, the City Coimcil: 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without 
my approval, an ordinance passed by your 
Honorable Body at its meeting of April 6th, 
granting permission to the Chicago, Milwau- 
kee & St. Paul Railway Company to use 
electric power for operating the Evanston 
Division of its line of railroad in the City of 
Chicago, from Kinzie street to the north 
boundary line of the city, for the reason that 
in my judgment the compensation olfered to 
the City of Chicago is entirely inadequate, 
considering the value to the company of the 
concession made in the said ordinance. 
Bisides, the ordinance should require the 
railroad company to keep the space between 
the rails either paved or well planked where- 
ever the company nuikes use of any part of a 
public street, and for the time the railroad is 
operated as a surface road. In view of the 
fact that a twenty-year franchise is asked, and j 
no provision is made for future elevation 
of the roadbed, it would have been well to 
have incorporated in the said ordinance a pro- 
vision requiring the removal of the overhead 
trolley within a definite length of time. 
This latter objection could have been 



obviated Dy a provision requiring the said 
company to elevate its roadbed upon the or- 
der of the City Council and Mayor of Chi- 
cago, thus relieving the city from suffering 
the annoyance and expense of a long and 
vexatious law suit, when the necessity for 
track elevation of this line becomes im- 
perative. 

Delegations of property owners living with- 
in the territory in which the railroad in in- 
terest is operated have petitioned me both for 
and against the passage of this ordinance. 
Those citizens in opposition seem to fear the 
change from steam to electricity will deprive 
them of the rapid transit on the strength of 
which their property was acquired and their 
homes have been built. Moreover they call 
attention to the fact that while the railroad 
company is profuse in its promises of rapid 
transit and improved train service, there is 
nothing in the ordinance to guarantee either 
the one or the other. Aside from local inter- 
ests, however, I do not consider it advisable to 
establish so dangerous a precedent as Avould 
be established by making a concession of 
great value to a corporation without insur- 
ing in return adequate compensation to the 
City of Chicago. 

Respectfully, 
Carter H. Harrison, 
JIayor. 

Aid. Jackson moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance referred to in the 
veto message of His Honor, the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Maltby moved the passage of the ordi- 
nance, the veto of His Honor, the Mayor, to 
the contrary notwithstanding.

mission to Charles Dupuy & Co. to erect and 
maintain an electric sign at their place of

that the order is too indefinite as to size of

orable B®dy at its last meeting, granting per- 
mission to August Zielinski to finish the 
repairs on his building, No. 555 Holt. Upon 



investigation, I find that the so-called repairs 
are in reality the erection of a two-story and 
basement frame rear addition to premises 
known as 555 Holt avenue, and consequently 
in direct violation of the Building ordinance.

trary notwithstanding. 

The motion was lost. 

Aid. Kunz moved that the order be placed

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted his an- 
nual message as follows : 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago : 

Gentlemen- I hereby comply with the 
charter provision requiring a presentation by 
the Mayor of a survey of the working of the 
City Government at the end of each munici- 
pal year, marked by the annual termination 
of office of half the City Council. 

It must be a matter of pride to the outgo- 
ing membership of your Honorable Body, as 
it undoubtedly is a subject on which the peo- 
ple of Chicago are to be congratulated, that 
a scrutiny of the records of the Council Pro- 
ceedings for 1897-8 will reveal a remarkable 
scarcity of vicious legislation. It has been 
my pleasant privilege to participate in the ef- 
fort to make such legislation scarce, and I 
promise the new members that the exercise*of 
that privilege on my part will not terminate- 
to-night. It is a matter for further congratu- 
lation that the Council of 1897-8 has not been 
content with being merely negatively good ; 
its treatment of such matters of momentous 
importance as track elevation, the intercept- 
ing sewer project, the extension of the elec- 
tric light system, the new building ordinance, 
water office reform and the garbage question 
stands decidedly to its credit. 

A year ago, when assuming the duties of 
Ma yor, in my inaugural address to this Body 



I 

I 



April 11,] 



[1898. 



I expressed the hope that, notwithstand- 
ing' all the horrors predicted by our op- 
ponents as certain to be the offsprins: of 
our Democratic administration, \^e would 
succeed not only in not lowering- but in ele- 
vating the financial standing of our city. 
Facts are stubborn things figures do not lie, 
and facts and figures show that Chicago's 
credit to-day is equal to that of the best in 
the land. Here are a few illustrations in this 
connection: 

1 . Seven per cent 20-year Gold Bonds, amount- 
ing to $100,000.00, refunded, through issuance 
and sale of similar bonds bearing interest at the 
low rate of 3i^ per cent per annum. A saving 
has thus been effected for the city, in interest 
charges, amounting to $3,500.00 annually for the 
next twenty years. These refunding bonds 
were sold at a premium of 1.0366, the highest 
premium for such bonds ever obtained by the 
city. 

2. All time warrants bearing 6 per cent inter- 
est called in and paid and new warrants issued 
at 5 per cent, thereby effecting a saving of one 
per cent on entire issue (an annual saving of 
about $25,000.00). An arrangement made with 
the banks by which these warrants were taken 
by them at par, thus enabling the Comptroller 
to pay contractors and other creditors in cash. 
This is an innovation in the history of city 
finances, and redounds to the credit of the city. 

3. Bonded debt reduced by retirement and 
cancellation of bonds amounting to $65,000.00. 
Provision has been made for the retirement of 
other bonds on January 1st, 1898, amounting to 
$82,000.00. 

4. Plans have been established for bringing 
old special assessment accounts up to date and 
the work is now under way. When this work is 
accomplished all rebates will be correctly ascer- 
tained and certified, and tax payers will be pro- 
tected from tax sharks. 

5. A more rigid supervision of the depart- 
ments in the expenditures of their appropria- 
tions has been established and maintained. 

6. The Comptroller has insisted in all cases 
upon the approval of salaries by the Civil Ser- 
vice Commis.sion before payment. 

7. A general reorganization of the Comptrol- 
ler's office was made early in the year. A thor- 
ough cliecking system was introduced for the 
safeguarding of accounts. Banking methods 
were adopted and improvements made for the 
convenience of the public. 

In reviewing the work of the year, and in 
bunching results, one is challenged on every 
hand with the obstacles arising from the in- 
adequacy of revenue, and with the difficulties 
growing out of technical legal intervention. 



It is hardly necessary to repeat here that 
the revenue of the city from taxation is in- 
sufficient to pay the expenses of an adequate 
Police and Fire Department alone. Still it 
may not be unprofitable to remind unthinkine: 
citizens of the certainty of this fact. If the 
average citizen, as Comptroller Waller points 
out in his annual report, could realize the 
fact that such absurd amounts are appro- 
priated as are made necessarily small by the 
limitations of our revenue, he would not be 
surprised that our streets and alleys are not 
better cleaned, that our bridges and public 
works are not kept in better repair, and that 
our thoroughfares are not more generally 
lig-hted. It is true that a new revenue law 
has been passed by the Legislature, but it is 
well to remember that this city will not benefit 
by the fruits of that law until 1900. In the 
meantime we have only to struggle along 
under the adverse conditions that admittedly 
exist at present. 

Another great drawback to the proper ad- 
ministration and growth of the city is in the 
fact that the funded or bonded debt is limited 
to an insignificant sum compared with the 
importance of the municipality and its 
necessities. It is this limitation which has 
made necessary many of the burdensome 
special assess?nent taxes, under which our 
citizens are groaning, and which almost con- 
fiscate the property of our poorer people by 
compelling the present generation to provide 
for tbe wants and necessities of generations 
to come. 

It is this limitation, also, which prevents 
the city from establishing and extending the 
many permanent improvements necessary for 
its welfare and beauty. Under the present 
limitation of our funded debt, we cannot 
incur an indebtedness in excess of eleven 
millions of dollars and the new law will limit 
that indebtedness to H0,000,000.00. 

When we consider that this great city pos- 
sesses, in its own right, property, buildings, 
etc., amounting in value at cost to more than 
fifty-nine millions of dollars (a conservative 
estimate of the present cash value is, in my 
opinion, ^S5, 000. 000.00), fcnd that these re- 
sources constitute, as will be seen in the state- 
ment of a.ssets and liabilities further on, a 
surplus of more than ^0.000,00.00 over its 
entire indebtedness, we can understand the 
insignificance of a bonded debt limited to ten 
millions of dollars. Any l)usiness corpora- 
tion making such a financial sliowing could 
issue bonds to the extent of ?i: 50. 000, 000. 00 



April 11, 



and sell them in any of the world's markets 
at the minimum rate of interest. All perma- 
nent improvements of the city should be con- 
structed from the proceeds of bond sales, as 
they benefit not only the present but future 
generations, who, in justice and equity, 
should bear their proportion of the expense. 
As matters now stand, we have reached the 
limit of ©ur indebtedness, and can mal^e no 
permanent improvements of any kind except 
by special taxation. 

The following" is a statement of the esti- 
mated income and appropriations for the year 
1897, showing the absurdly small amounts 
allowed the Executive for cleauiner streets 
and alleys, street lighting, etc., during that 
year, as well as the loss or reduction of the 
general fund during the year;

Instead of sitting down and weeping over 
the insufficiency of revenue, the administra- 
tion tackled the task of giving the city more 
light, of inaugurating an intercepting sewer 
system which will result in giving the city 
absolutely pure water, in arranging for the 
establishment of what was regarded as an 
almost perfect garbage system, and in seeing 
to it that track elevation should be a fact and 
not a theory. The question of pure water is 
one that most vitally affects the people, and 



April 11, 



[1898. 



one that will continue to be agitated until 
every particle of the sewage of the city is di- 
verted from the lake. 

I am pleased to inform you that within 
sixty days from this date at least 40 per cent 
of the amount of sewage now polluting the 
waters of Lake Michigan will have been di- 
verted therefrom into the river. The con- 
tracts for the construction of sewers to 
change the flow of sewage from the Twelfth 
and Twenty-second street systems were let 
March 8th, 1897, the work to be completed 
the first day of next June. The work is pro- 
gressing in such manner as to justify the be- 
lief that it will be completed before that date. 

The work on the plans for the intercepting 
sewers is progressing with a rapidity and suc- 
cess that will guarantee their completion at 
the earliest possible date. In saying this, I 
do not wish to be understood as conveying 
the idea that there are no obstacles to be over- 
come. The plans for the conduit on Thirty- 
ninth street show that the undertaking is of a 
character not surpassed, as an engineering 
proposition, by any work of recent years in 
or about Chicago. The results to be accom- 
plishd, however, can be fully appreciated 
only by those having a knowledge of the 
existing conditions of the Chicago River. 
The Stock Yards Canal, the West Fork of 
the South Branch and the South Fork of the 
South Branch of the Chicago River are a 
menace to the health of the people of the City 
of Chicago. By the construction of the con- 
duit at Thirty-ninth street, if we secure no 
other result than the purification of the sec- 
tions of the river named and the diversion of 
the flow of sewage from the lake, leaving the 
water pure and wholesome, the money will 
have been well sjjent. Much of this could 
have been accomplished without increasing 
the size of the conduit recommended by the 
Pure Water Comn)ission ; but there is another 
consideration that effects every citizen and 
taxpayer in the City of Chicago, and that is 
the successful completion of the Sanitary 
Canal. It is a well known fact that the 
amount of water required by the statute 
could not bo secured through the Chicago 
River without a most extraordinary expendi- 
ture of money. The Sanitary Trustees had 
under consideration the construction of a 
conduit along the same line selected by the 
Pure Water Commission. The same taxpayers 
furnish the money for the City of Chicago 
and for the Drainage District; therefore, if 
the City Government and Sanitary Trustees 



had each proceeded without regard to the 
plans of the other, it would have resulted in 
an extravagant waste of money of the 
people and a disregard of all ordi- 
nary business rules. After a number of 
conferences between the Mayor of Chicago 
and the Commissioner of Public Works 
(representing the City of Chicago), and the 
Engineering Committee (representing the 
Sanitary Trustees), a plan was arrived at 
whereby the City of Chicago would construct 
conduits of suflScient capacity to assure the 
flow of water (in conjunction with the Chi- 
cago River) required by the statute. 

Thus we seek to accomplish, through the 
work now being done and by the plans now 
being prepared, three most important results: 
Removing a most foul plague spot by the 
dilution of the Chicago River, the discon- 
tinuance of the pollution of the waters of 
Lake Michigan (the source of our water sup- 
ply), and supplying about 25 per cent of the 
necessary dilution of the Sanitary Canal. 

TRACK ELEV.\TION. 

Track elevation in Chicago is now an as- 
sured success ; the railroads realize they must 
elevate their roadbeds and the work is bound 
to move steadily on until every dangerous 
grade crossing in the city is eliminated. 

The advantages assured to the people are 
manifold; track elevation does away with 
the enormous evil of grade crossings: it in- 
sures safety to life: it solves the problem of 
rapid transit, as the speed need not be regu- 
lated by city ordinances; it does away with 
delays and interruption to street travel; it 
dispenses with the guards and gates at street 
crossings; it makes null and void the ordi- 
nance regulating the length of trains, and 
the number of cars to a train, within the 
city; it does away with the ringing of bells 
and the midnight annoyance of the indus- 
trious locomotive. While it was supposed 
that the elevation of tracks would be an in- 
jury to the industries along the right of way 
of the roads, it has proved to be a benefit, 
and every industry, so far, has been accom- 
modated. 

The records show that there has been more 
actual work done in the matter of track ele- 
vation during the past year than in any for- 
mer year. Ordinances that have been passed 
for the elevation of railroad tracks are hereby 
outlined as follows: 

May 17, 1897, which is known as the St. 
Charles Air Line Ordinance, and covers ele- 



April 11,

vation of tracks of the following lines: 
Illinois Central, Michigan Central, Chicago 
and Northwestern, and Chicago, Burlington 
and Quincy Railroads, 1.16 miles. 

The roadbed and tracks of the Lake Shore 
and Michigan Southern and the Chicago, 
Rock Island and Pacific Railways shall be 
elevated from a point near Twelfth Street 
viaduct, and extending southwardly to a 
point near Archer avenue ; there to connect 
with the present elevated roadbed and tracks 
of said Lake Shore and Michigan Southern 
and Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Rail- 
ways ; and in this plane of elevation, doing 
away with the grade crossing at Eighteenth 
street, where subway will be built, and also 
eliminating the railroad crossing of the Chi- 
cago and Western Indiana and the Santa Fe 
Railroads, where the roadbed and tracKs of 
the two companies will be depressed under 
the proposed elevation of the Lake Shore and 
Michigan Southern and Chicago, Rock Island 
and Pacific Railways. This plane of eleva- 
tion is very near one mile in length. 

The roadbed and tracks of the Chicago and 
Western Indiana and the Atchison, Topeka 
and Santa Fe Railroads are to be depressed, 
commencing at a point near Eighteenth Street 
viaduct, and extending to a point northeast 
of, and near Fourteenth street; and in this 
depression to pass underneath the proposed 
elevated roadbed and tracks of the Lake Shore 
and Michigan Southern and the Chicago, 
Rock Island and Pacific Railways, just north 
of the crossing of the St. Charles Air Line 
Railroad, as above mentioned, with the last 
two named companies; and in this course, 
doing away with or eliminating the grade 
crossing of Clark street, at which point the 
traflac of the city on Clark street will pass 
over the depressed tracks of the Chicago and 
Western Indiana and the Atchison, Topeka 
and Santa Fe Railroads, and underneath the 
St. Charles Air Line Railway Company. The 
distance of depression of the last two named 
companies will be about three-quarters of a 
mile. 

A provision was made in the ordinance for 
the elevation of the South Side Rapid Transit 
Company, to elevate their roadbed and tracks 
where it crosses the roadbed and tracks of 
the St. Charles Air Line just north of Six- 
teenth street, wliich has already been done, to 
enable all of the railway companies interested 
in the work at this point to commence the 
work this spring; and we are given to under- 
stand that this work will be commenced as 



soon as the frost is out of the ground, and 
will be completed within three months. This 
will cost approximately 12,000,000. 

The Lake Shore and Chicago, Rock Island 
and Pacific Railways have elevated, jointly, 
for a distance of about one mile from Thirty- 
eighth street southwardly to Forty-seventh 
street, and constructed subways in the follow- 
ing streets: Thirty-ninth street, Root street, 
Forty-third street. Forty-fourth street, Forty- 
fifth street and Forty-fifth place; and in 
addition to the above they have constructed 
retaining walls, and the foundations of the 
abutments for the subways at Sixtieth and 
Sixty-first streets, and also have elevated 
their yards between Root and Forty-third 
streets, at an estimated cost of $500,000. 

The Pittsburg, Fort Wayne and Chicago 
Railway in Stewart avenue, acting under an 
ordinance passed July 27, 1896, providing for 
the elevation of their roadbed and tracks 
from Fifty-fifth street south to State street, 
constructed all the necessary retaining walls 
between Fifty-fifth street and Wentworth 
avenue, and the foundations f©r the abut- 
ments of all subways between these points, 
so that as soon as practicable in spring the 
work of filling in between these retaining 
walls and the elevating of the roadbed 
and tracks will be done simultaneously 
with the Lake Shore and Michigan Southern 
and the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific 
Railways at Sixty-third street, as it is the 
intention of all the above-named companies 
to complete their work next year. The cost 
of this work will be about $225,000. 

The Chicago and Northwestern Railway 
Company, acting under an ordinance which 
was passed March 30, 1896, providing for the 
elevation of their Milwaukee division, and 
extending from Wrightwood avenue to Bryn 
Mawr avenue, a distance of about four and 
one-half miles, completed the portion of this 
elevation which was left over from last sea- 
son, beginning at Berteau avenue and extend- 
ing north to Rose Hill cemetery, a distance 
of a little over two miles, and constructing' 
subways in Montrose avenue, Sunnyside ave- 
nue, Wilson avenue, Leland avenue, Law- 
rence avenue, Winneraac avenue, Foster ave- 
nue and Balmoral avenue. This work was 
commenced April 1st, and was completed in 
about thirty days, and cost about S400.000. 
After finishing this work the force of men 
were moved to Rockwell street; and acting 
under an ordinance passed January 18, 1897, 
the Chicago and Northwestern Railway and 



April 11, 



[1S98. 



the Pittsburg-, Cincinnati, Cliicag-o and St. 
Louis Railway jointly elevated their road- 
beds and tracks from a point north of Fulton 
street to a point south of Twelfth street un- 
der Ogden avenue viaduct, a distance of 
about two miles, and constructing subways in 
the following- streets: Fulton street, West 
Lake street, Park avenue, Washington boul- 
evard, Warren avenue, West Madison street. 
West Monroe street, Wilcox avenue, West 
Adams street, Jackson boulevard, West Van 
Buren street, West Congress street. West 
Harrison street, Flournoy street, Lexington 
street, Polk street, Harvard street. West 
Taylor street, and in conjunction with the 
Chicago Terminal Transfer Railroad Com- 
pany the two above-named companies con- 
structed a subway in West Twelfth street. 
The above work was commenced on the first 
day of June and was completed by the 
first day of November. In addition to 
the above elevation the Lake Street 
Elevated Railroad elevated their roadbed 
and tracks above this elevation, so that 
there was a clear head room of 16.5 feet. 
Also the Metropolitan West Side Elevated 
Railroad Company elevated their roadbed 
and tracks so that there was a clear head 
room of 1G.5 feet provided above the new 
elevated roadbed and tracks of the Chicago 
and Northwestern Railway and the Pitts- 
burg, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis 
Railway, all at a probable cost of about 
11,000,000. 

On December 2d, an ordinance ,/as passed 
providing for the elevation of the Chicago 
and Northwestern Railway, from Chicago 
avenue viaduct in a northwesterly direction 
to Diversey avenue, on the Milwaukee Divi.s- 
ion, where it connects with the present 
elevated roadbed and tracks of said railway, 
and also extending to Wood street on the 
Wisconsin Division, where it shall connect 
with the proposed elevation, as provided in 
the ordinance passed March 30, 18%; a total 
distance of elevation of about three miles. 

This ordinance also provides for the eleva- 
tion of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway, for a distance of about one-half 
mile, where it crosses the Chicago and North- 
western Railway, and subways are to be con- 
structed on the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. 
Paul Railway in Elston avenue. North Ash- 
land avenue and North Marshfield avenue; 
CM the lineof elevation of the Chicago and 
Northwestern Railway, subways shall be con- 
structed in North Sangamon street, North 



Carpenter street, North May street, Elston 
avenue, North Centre avenue, Augusta street, 
Wade street, West Division street, Sloan 
street, Bradley street. Ingraham street. Black- 
hawk street, (the junction of Fox place, 
Blanche and Noble streets). West North ave- 
nue, Wabansia avenue, Clybourn place, 
Armitage avenue, Elston avenue, Webster 
avenue. East FuUerton avenue, Clybourn 
avenue and Wrightwood avenue; at a cost of 
about ^1,200,000. 

On December 2d. 1897, an ordinance was 
passed for the elevation of the Chicago, Mil- 
waukee and St. Paul Railway and extending 
from a point east of Central Park boulevard 
to Irving Park boulevard, a distance of about 
six miles; also for the elevation of its branch 
line at Pacific Junction, a distance of about 
one mile; and for the elevation of the Chi- 
cago and Northwestern Railway from a point 
south of Milwaukee avenue north to Irving 
Park boulevard, a distance of about one-half 
mile. In the main line of elevation of the 
Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway 
subways are to be constructed in West Chi- 
cago avenue, North Kedzie avenue. North 
Spaulding avenue, (Grand and Homan ave- 
nues), AVest Division .street, Central Park 
avenue, (Tiukham and Hirsch streets), (North 
Lawndale avenue and LeMoyne street). West 
North avenue, Wabansia avenue, Cortland 
street, Armitage avenue, Dickens avenue. 
Humboldt avenue, (North Fortieth avenue 
and Belden avenue). West FuUerton avenue, 
West Wrightwood avenue. West Diversey 
avenue. West Wellington street. West Bel- 
mont avenue, West Roscoe street. West Addi- 
son avenue, Milwaukee avenue and Irving 
Park boulevard; and on its branch line at 
Pacific Junction subways are to be con- 
structed in Norlh Lawndale avenue. North 
Springfield avenue, and North Fortieth ave- 
nue; and on the May fair "cut off'' branch 
line of the Chicago and Northwestern Rail- 
way, subways shall be constructed in Milwau- 
kee avenue and Irving Park boulevard, at a 
cost of about 81. 200.000. 

HEl'OUT OF DEl'AUT.MKNT OF ELECTKICITY." 

During the year 1897 the municipal electric 
light .system has been increased by the aildi- 
tion of 18:5 arc lamps of 2.0(M) candle power 
each. This increase is greater than in any 
previous year since 1890. The additions were 
made to the existing plants and at a very 
reasonable cost, the average cost per light not 
exceeding S200.00, all the work being under- 



April 11,

[1898. 



ground and of the same character as that 
previously in service. 

The city now has a total of 1,438 arc lamps 
operated from its own plants, and during the 
current year the system will be more than 
doubled, an appropriation of $150,000.00 hav- 
ing been made in the annual appropriation 
bill for the purpose of extending municipal 
lighting. 

The exact location of these lamps has not 
yet been decided upon, but they will be dis- 
tributed on the North, West and South sides 
of the city in a manner and at such points 
where they will be of the greatest benefit to 
the public. This increase in the system will 
necessitate establishing one new station on 
the South side, increasing the capacity of the 
three existing stations and equipping the 
Rice and Lincoln street station, which has 
not been in use for the past three years. All 
of the lights of the outlying districts will be 
connected with the stations by means of over- 
head work, but in the district known as the 
"underground district" the wires will be 
placed under ground. 

The cost to the city for overhead work on 
the South side will be very materially de- 
creased for the reason that the Chicago City 
Railway Company has offered the use of. such 
pole lines as it may be desirable to use. If a 
similar arrangement could have been made 
with the North and West side street railroad 
companies no less that 2,600 arc lights could 
have been added to the present system ; but 
these companies flatly refused to follow the 
example of the City Railway company. 

The city rents a total of 581 arc lamps from 
private companies, which, added to the elec- 
tric lights operated by the city, makes a total 
of 1,916 lamps used exclusively for street 
lighting. They are located as follows:

The maintenance of the electric lighting 
system during 1897 was on a basis of $90.65 
per Jamp per year. The first six months the 
lamps cost on an average of $46.73 each; for 
the second six months an average of $43.92 
each. The cost per hour, per lamp, for the 
first six months was .0245; for the last six 
months, per lamp, per hour, .0216. 

The Electric Light Department has been 
entirely reorganized ; more efficient machinery 
installed in the stations, which for the last 
six months show a saving that warrants a 
guarantee that the electric lighting this year 
will not cost to exceed $83.00 per light per 
year. 

The repairs for electric lighting mainten- 
ance by the city was discontinued on August 
5th, and repairs are now made by contract. 
This shows a net saving in cost of $.570.71 per 
month. All the improvements made in the 
electric lighting system have been charged to 
the maintenance of the system, and to secure 
economical operation of the system it has 
not been necessary to expend any large sums 
of money. 

Dui-ing the last six months of 1897 the cost 
of coal was nearly double what it was the 
preceding six months on account of a strike 
of the coal miners. This additional price for 
coal materially increased the cost of last 
year's lighting, making a difference of nearly 
$4.00 per light per year. The conditions 
under which the new lights will be installed 
and guarantee obtained on the apparatus used 
in producing lights, warrant a statement that 
the new lights, as installed, will not exceed a 
cost of $75.00 per light per year. 

The inventoried value of the electric light 
system January 1, 1898, was $797,431.11. 

The apparatus is all in good condition and 
practically as good as new. It consisls of 
220.4 miles of underground circuits, with 
necessary conduit system ; three power 
houses; twelve engines; twelve boilers; 1,552 
lamps, hoods and appliances, and real estate 
on which the buildings are situated. 

BUREAU OF ELECTRICAL INSPECTIONS. 

The work of this branch of the department 
consists of inspecting all electrical installa- 



April 11, 



11 



tions within the city limits, during the prog:- 
ress of the work, and issuing certificates to 
the effect that the work as completed com- 
plies with the ordinances of the city govern- 
ing installations of electrical wires and ap- 
paratus, and is safe and secure in every re- 
spect. 

The reports of inspections show that there 
is a very rapid increase in the use of elec- 
tricity for light and power, and it has be- 
come necessary to enlarge the department in 
order to properly inspect the work as it is be- 
ing installed. This does not increase the ex- 
pense of the city, as all expenses of this de- 
partment are paid from fees collected. 

The total receipts for inspections dur- 
ing 1897 were Sl6,246 52 

Total expenditures for the department 
were 10,910 18 

Balance unexpended $ 5,338 34 

The number of fires due to electrical causes, 
during 1897, was 91. 

The total loss from fires thus caused was 
89,515.00. 

. There was but one serious fire so caused, 
the loss amounting to a total of 88,000. The 
balance of the loss, 81,515.00, was divided 
up among the other 90 fires. 

There are in operation within the city 
limits, at the present time, a total of 771 cen- 
tral stations and isolated electric light plants, 
from which are operated a total of 27,193 arc 
lamps, and 045,901 IG-candle power incandes- 
cent lamps, and probably no less than 5,400 
horse power in motors, exclusive of street 
railroads. 

ELECTROLYSIS. 

During the year a great nun)ber of tests 
have been made for electrolysis resulting 
from the use of grounded street railroad 
trolley circuits. 

A test and examination was made showing 
that there is considerable danuige already 
done to the water and gas pipes of the city. 
and that under the present conditions the 
damage is Increasing continually. 

Very careful reports of tUe tests and ex- 
aminations made have been preserved and the 
entire matter has been referred to the Law 
Department with instructions to protect the 
city's interests. 

Numerous samples of i)ipes whicli have 
been badly damaged by electrolysis have been 
preserved and will be used as evidence when 
the matter comes up for final adjustment. 



DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. 

At the close of 1897 the Commissioner of 
Health was able to report a fewer number of 
deaths for the twelve months than for any 
year since 1889. This is the more remarkable 
when the growth of the area of the city and 
of its population is considered. Since April, 
1889 — that is. during the last ten years— the 
city has expanded from an area of less than 
thirty-six square miles to a fraction more 
than 187 square miles at the present time, 
with a corresponding increase of population. 

The death rate — based on the school census 
figures of population announced July 1, 1896, 
to-wit: 1.619,220 — was 13.46 per thousand, 
the lowest ever recorded for any city in the 
world having a population of half a million 
or more. On this showing Chicago may fairly 
claim to be the best large city on earth in 
which to live and do business, since the 
chances of long and vigorous life are better 
and the loss of time from sickness and dis- 
ability is less here than in anj^ other city of 
first magnitude, either in this country or 
abroad. 

Of the development of the work of the 
department, that of the laboratory is espe- 
cially noteworthy. It is claimed that, in 
many respects, the character and volume of 
its labors are unparalleled even in the old 
established and expensively equipped public 
laboratories of the East and in Europe. It 
exercises a constant supervision over the san- 
itary quality of the water supply, and over 
milk, ice, meats and other articles of food — 
largely to the result of which eminent mem- 
bers of the medical profession attribute our 
low death rate, especially among infants and 
young children. Among other things the 
purity of all vaccine lymph used in public 
vaccination is rigidly maintained through the 
laooratory, and thus the chief objection to 
this great protection against smallpox has 
been removed. 

This and similar work of the department 
have so added to the sanitary reputation of 
the city abroad, that the official organ of the 
largest and most influential body of medical 
and sanitary authorities among English- 
speaking peoples, has recently editorially 
commended to the Royal Comn\ission for 
adoption in Great Britain what it stylos "the 
Chicago system of sanitary machinery,'' 
The value and Importance of this branch of 
the department work have been recogrnized 
by the Ct)uncil, in providing increased facil-

ities and accommodation for the laboratory 
in part of the space vacated by the Public 
Library. 

The Commissioner is especially pleased 
with the prospect of a still further improve- 
ment of the public health, which it is con- 
fidently anticipated will follow the diversion 
of sewage from the lake by the intercepting 
sewers and the reversal of the flow of the 
great sewers in Twelfth street and Twenty- 
second street to the South Branch. What 
may be reasonably expected from this work 
is foreshadowed in the result last year of the 
unusually dry weather. The year was the 
dryest on record since the establishment of 
the Weather Bureau station in this city in 
1871, and, as a consequence, the sanitary 
quality of the water was not affected, as 
usual, by frequent rain flushings of sewage 
into the lake. The 42 per cent, reduction in 
the number of deaths froiii typhoid fever, as 
compared with the previous year— the least 
actual number in ten years — is attributed to 
this cause. 

One of the most gratifying features noted 
in connection with the present administra- 
tion of the Health Department, in addition 
to the growing confidence of the public in its 
ability to prevent anything like an epidemic 
of the contagious diseases, is the cordial co- 
operation of the medical profession in the 
efforts of the department since the return of 
a medical man to its head as commissioner. 
This co-operation is justly regarded as a most 
important factor in the success of sanitary 
administration, and it is now accorded to an 
extent that has never before obtained. Dur- 
ing the last year all friction and opposition 
to the rules and regulations of the depart- 
ment have disappeared and some 3,500 physi- 
cians have become more or less active co-work- 
ers in all measures projected for the protection 
of the public health and the betterment of the 
sanitary condition of the city. The com- 
munity is to be congratulated on this notable 
accession to the working forces of its sani- 
tary care-takers. 

STREET CLEANING AND COLLECTION OF GAR- 
BAGE. 

Early last summer a committee was ap- 
pointed by the Council for the purpose of 
securing for Chicago a system for the collec- 
tion and destruction of garbage that would 
be as near perfect as possible. After many 
months of arduous labor, including visits to 
the particular cities throughout the country. 



12 [1896. 

a plan known as the five years' contract sys- 
tem was adopted and was about to be put 
into effect when the courts were appealed to, 
resulting in an adverse decision on technical 
grounds and the squelching of the plan. Fol- 
lowing this a system was adopted by which 
we are doing our own collection, the city be- 
ing divided into districts and local inspectors 
being held responsible for results. This sys- 
tem, which is also applied to street cleaning, 
seems to give general satisfaction. 

THE BUREAU OF STREETS. 

The work of the Bureau of Streets, like 
other bureaus, has been hampered a great 
deal by lack of suflncient funds to properly 
conduct the work. The money in hand has, 
however, been spent to good advantage, 
especially in the repair of improved streets. 

The placing of plank sidewalks in the city 
in good repair has been supplemented by the 
action of the Board of Local Improvements 
in notifying property owners that unless they 
put their walks in proper condition, as by 
law they are required to do, assessments 
would be levied upon said property for new, 
concrete or stone walks. This has resulted in 
an increase of about 60 per cent in the amount 
of sidewalks repaired by the owners of prop- 
erty. The city, where the conditions of 
walks was dangerous, has expended large 
amounts annually in repairing sidewalks, 
which could have been repaired by the owners 
of the property. 

In special assessment work the cost of engi- 
neering during 1897 has been reduced at least 
25 per cent, at the same time getting better 
results in the construction of pavements. 
About fifty-five miles of pavement was laid 
during the year. With the line of action, as 
now mapped out. the close of the year 1S98 
will find a still better class of workmanship 
and materials. 

LAYING NEW PAVEMENTS. 

The action of the Board of Local Improve- 
ments, in specifying the use of Portland 
cement in the construction of foundations for 
asphalt, granite and brick improvements 
cannot but be attended by more permanent 
improvements during 1S9S and subsequent 
years. 

SPECIAL ASSESSMENTS. 

The Superintendent of the Bureau of 
Special Assessments reports that the working 
of his department under the new special 
assessment law is giving much satisfaction. 



1 



April 11,]

ri89S. 



One of the most pressing causes of complaint 
under the old law was that people upon whom 
the cost of particular improvements would 
fall were not consulted either about the neces- 
sity for it nor about the nature nor cost of 
it; but under the new law all ordinances for 
local improvements must originate with the 
Board of Local Improvements, who shall 
determine when a special improvement is 
desirable. The present board meets every 
Tuesday and is very careful to give a hearing 
to property owners interested in proposed im- 
provements. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

The report of the General Superintendent 
of Police, based on the records of his depart- 
ment, contains assurance for all classes of 
citizens that the efficiency, vigilance and zeal 
that have characterized this department will 
permit them to pursue their respective avoca- 
tions without fear of being robbed and as- 
saulted by long or short men. One need not 
be exceedingly observant to note that with 
the approach of winter comes an annual out- 
breal< of crime. We all noticed evidences of 
such a visitation at the advent of the winter 
just ended, but it should not be allowed to 
pass without comment, that criminality 
barely showed itself during last fall, when it 
was crushed out with a suddenness and suc- 
cess that ought to be regarded with pride and 
satisfaction by every Chicagoan. There has 
been no evidence of crime through the recent 
winter as in formeryears; the criminals came 
in the fall, but they were severely taught that 
Chicago was an unhealthy clime for them, 
with the result that they were wise enough 
not to linger here long. 

In this connection, it is interesting to ob- 
serve that practically the entire Police De- 
partment is now^ under Civil Service. The 
report of the present Commission shows its 
certification to the Police Department to be 
2,840, compared with 4:37 certifications of the 
Commission under the preceding administra- 
tion. The former Commission slumbered at 
their posts and the ultra reformers turned 
their heads aside. The Commission under 
the present administration busied themselves 
in carrying out the law and these same ultra 
reformers rushed to the Grand Jury room 
and secured their indictment, resulting, how- 
ever, in more honor for tliosc indicted than 
for the ones who secured their indictment. 
The certifications made by the Swift Com- 
mission number in all 1,71)2. as against .S,11).S 



made by the succeeding commission, telling 
their own story. 

Corporation Counsel Thornton, in his an- 
nual report, referring to the Civil Service 
litigation says: 

Early in the year the case of the People of the 
State of Illinois on relation of Edward C. Akin, 
Attorney General, vs. Joseph Kipley, Superin- 
tendent of Police of Chicago, impleaded, etc., a 
mandamus proceeding instituted in the Supreme 
Court of Illinois, was contested for the purpose 
of testing the constitutionality of the Civil Ser- 
vice Law. As the result of the litigation in that 
court. Section thirty-five of the law was de- 
clared unconstitutional. The remaining sec- 
tions of the law were sustained by a majority of 
the Court, dissenting opinions being rendered 
by the Chief Justice and one other of the jurtices 
of the Court. An appeal has been prayed to the 
Supreme Court of the United States, where the 
case is now pending, and wherein it is con- 
tended that the law was enacted by the Illinois 
legislature in violation of the provisions of that 
part of the Fourteenth amendment of the con- 
stitution of the United States providing; that no 
state shall make or enforce any law which shall 
abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens 
of the United States. 

The present Civil Service Commission in 
the meantime are carrying out the mandate 
of the Supreme Court of the state. 

JUSTICE SHOPS. 

The justice shop system at present in 
vogue, with all its necessarily attendant 
scandals, is about to be wiped out. Arrange- 
ments are now being made by which the fee 
feature and other characteristics of tempta- 
tion Avill be abolished. The victims of the 
system as it now stands are among those of 
our people who are least able to protect them- 
selves, and I am confident the change /rom 
the old to the new plan will prove to be most 
beneficent in its results. 

FIKE DEPAUTMEXT. 

TlieFire Department splendidly maintained 
during the year its magnificent record for 
its efficiency and bravery. The department 
responded to eJ.SO.S alarms and extinguished 
r),;i3(; fires, an increa.se of 1,115 alarms and d\2 
fires over the previous year. 

IMIl.DINO DEPAUTMEXT. 

Beneficial results are expected from the 
building ordinance recently passed as the re- 
sult of the study and labor of a special com- 
mission consisting of experts in building 
lines. 



April 11, J

[1898. 



Among the principal changes in regard to 
the erection of buildings are the following : 

First — Not granting permits where plans 
are not stamped by a licensed architect, for 
buildings other than Class Three, for- more 
than two stories in height, nor greater area 
than 1,250 square feet. 

Second — The licensing of builders. This, 
in addition to being quite a revenue to the 
city, will help us keep a check on all con- 
tractors. 

Third — The reducing of the height of build- 
ings from 155 feet to 130. 

Fourth — The causing of all stairways con- 
structed around or alongside elevator shafts 
in buildings of four or more stories in height 
to be separated from the elevator shaft by 
fire proof walls. 

Fifth — Changing the law on fire escapes, so 
as to include all buildings of four or more 
stories in height. 

Sixth — The law on erecting hospitals has 
been so altered as to compel parties making 
application for such permit to first submit 
the written consent of the person or persons 
who may be the owners or agents of the 
entire frontage of the four sides of the block 
in which such building is to be located, and 
the entire frontage of the block on the oppo- 
site side of the street on which such building 
faces. 

Under the old ordinance the written con- 
sent of the owners or owner of but 150 feet 
frontage on each side and adjoining and 300 
feet of frontage on the opposite side of the 
street were necessary to obtain the permit ; 
this was certainly an injustice to owners of 
property in the rear of such building. 

• STREET RAILWAY INVESTIGATION. 

The Special Council Committee to investi- 
gate the earning powers and general condi- 
tions, financial and otherwise, of the street 
railway companies in their relation to the 
city, has completed its work, and its report 
contains information that will prove to be of 
incalculable value in connection with future 
street railway legislation. 

WATER AND SCHOOL COMMISSION. 

Another special committee whose labors 
are certain to result in benefit to the city, 
was the committee appointed for the equali- 
zation of water rates. One of the advantages 
arising will be that those who can best afford 
to pay more and who had not been paj'ing 



their just share, will be compelled to contrib- 
ute what they honestly owe, while a corres- 
ponding burden will be removed from the 
poorer class of tax payers, whose rates are 
unduly high. 

A commission that I am confident is des- 
tined to produce far reaching results for the 
tax payers of Chicago and for the educational 
interests of our people, is the commission 
composed of expert educators and ex- 
perienced business men, appointed to devise 
a more suitable system for our public schools 
than that which at present prevails. 

DEPARTMENT OE SUPPLIES. 

By an ordinance passed in January of the 
present year the Council created a new ex- 
ecutive department, known as the Depart- 
ment of Supplies. This department is 
charged with the purchasing of supplies, and 
letting of contracts for labor in cases where- 
in the expenditure involved is less than five 
h ndred dollars. This plan brings the city's 
buying under a business system and centers 
the responsibility in one executive officer. A 
store house has been established in connec- 
tion with the department, and such supplies 
as are in regular and constant use will be car- 
ried in stock and delivered as required. 

The creation of this department and its 
operation under restrictions which insure 
purchases at lowest competitive prices will 
doubtless effect a large saving and promote 
efficiency of service in various directions. 

ILLINOIS CENTRAL LAKE FRONT FIGHT. 

The noted contest between the City and the 
Illinois Central Railroad Company in regard 
to the jurisdiction of the city over the lake 
front has been brought to a climax during 
the past year. The city insisted on asserting 
what we conceived to be its rights ; the mat- 
ter was taken into the courts with the result 
that our prohibition of the encroachment on 
the lake front by the railroad company was 
sustained. The management of this case in 
the courts reflects particular credit on the 
Corporation Counsel. 

The city was also successful in the im- 
portant litigation wherein we claimed the 
right to build intercepting sewers out of the 
Water Fund. The importance of this latter 
decision is apparent in view of the fact that 
it would have been impossible for many years 
for the City of Chicago to make provision for 
a supply of pure water had the city been 
unsuccessful in its effort to defray the ex- 



April 11, J

[1898. 



pease of the sewerage system out of the 
Water Fund. In the Valentine scrip case, 
pending before the Secretary of the Interior, 
wherein the city filed its brief, a decision was 
rendered favorable to its contention, and 
within the past few days, a victory of stupen- 
dous significance was won in Judge Ball's 
court in the Weir & McKeckney Northwest 
Land Tunnel Case. It gives the authorities 
full control of the entire work under con- 
tract, and will result in saving upward of 
half a million dollars for.the city. 

Reports have been made by the heads of 
the various city departments, including the 
City Comptroller, City Collector, City Engi- 
neer and Corporati®n Counsel, which show 
in detail splendid results from the working 
of their offices, and these will be printed for 
the benefit of those who desire more par- 
ticulars than are given in this necessarily 
cursory statement.

lay tracks on said avenue, it being entirely a 
residence street, and the only through avenue 
nortli and south entering Washington Park. 

It will not only be a damage to property, 
but a source of great danger to the hundreds 
of cliildren that attend the Forestvillc and 
St. Lawrence avenue public schools, which are 
situated on said avenue, at the corners of 4r)th 
and 40th streets, respectively.

State of Illinois, i 
County of Cook, >ss. 
City of Chicago. ) 

To tlie Honorable, the City Council of the City 

of Chicago : 

Your petitioners, Silas F. Leach man and 
Charles N. Loucks, of the City of Chicago, 
County of Cook and State of Illinois, respect- 
fully represent unto your Honorable Body, 
that they are residents of the Twenty-seventh 
Ward of the City of Chicago, and have been 
such residents for six years last past, and are 
and have been qualified electors in said ward 
for six years last past ; that your petitioner, 
Silas F. Leachman, was the regular nominee 
for the office of Alderman of the City of 
Chicago for said Twenty-seventh Ward on 
the Democratic ticket, at the election held on 
the 5th day of April, 1898; that at the same 
election Hubert W. Butler was the regular 
nominee for such ©flRce of the Republican 
party; that your petitioner's name and the 
name of said Hubert W. Butler appeared 
upon the official ballot as candidates for said 
office of Alderman at said election. 

Your petitioners further represent to your 
Honorable Body, upon information and be- 
lief which your petitioners believe to be true, 
that the said Hubert W. Butler was not, at 
the time of his nomination for said office, or 
at the time of said election on the 5th day of 
April, as aforesaid, nor is now legally ciuali- 
ficd t3 hold said office of Alderman of said 
City of Chicago for the Twenty-seventh 
Ward, for the reason, as your petitioners are 
informed and believe, that .said Butler did not 
at the date of said election, nor had been for 
.several months before, and is not now a resi- 
dent within the .said Twenty-seventh Ward of 
said City of Chicago. 

Your petitioners further rejiresent. upon 
information and belief which they believe to 
be true, that for a period of about two years 
or more prior to the first of Scpti'mhcr, 1S'.»7, 
the said Butler had u house furnished in said 
ward; that his family resided there for a 
few days at a time occasionally, but 
were away the greater portion of the 
time; that in September, is<)7, the said 
Butler removed liis household efTects from 



April 11,]

[1898. 



said house to the second flat in the building 
known as Xo. 4729 Lake avenue, which build- 
ing is on the South Side of the city, and not 
situated in any part of said Twenty-seventh 
Ward; that since said September, 1897, the 
family of said Butler have occupied said flat 
as their residence, and still occupy said flat 
as a residence and have not at any time since 
September, 1S97, occupied any building or 
lived in said Twenty-seventh Ward ; that he 
has occasionally come into said ward, and 
stayed for a night or two ; and had a room in 
the club house, in said ward, where he had 
abed in a room rented in said club house; 
that some three or four weeks before the 
election on April 5, 1898. he removed his said 
bed from said club house to a room in the 
barn on the premises previously occupied by 
him in said Twenty-seventh Ward, but only 
stayed there occasionally ; that said premises 
are situated in the Second election precinct of 
said Twentj -seventh Ward; that the club 
house where said Butler had his bed for a 
time is situated in the Eleventh election pre- 
cinct of said ward. 

Your petitioners further represent, on in- 
formation and belief which they believe to 
be true, that the said premises previously 
occupied by said Butler prior to September, 
1897. were owned by the father of said Butler ; 
that on the 6th of April, 1S9S. the next day 
after the election aforesaid, a deed was 
placed on record in Cook County, for said 
premises, dated March 11. 1S9S. conveying 
said premises to W. W. Strong. 

Your petitioner further represent, on in- 
formation and belief which they believe to 
be true, that said Butler procured his said 
election, as Alderman of said Twenty-seventh 
Ward by fraudulent use of money, and that 
he did not receive a majority of the legal 
votes cast at said election ; that the returns 
from said ward, as canvassed by the Board of 
Election Commissioners, show said Butler to 
have received 157 majority : that if the illegal 
votes cast at said, election by reason of 
the fraudulent use ot money by said But- 
ler, and those interested in his election, were 
excluded, that said Butler would not have a 
majority of the votes cast in said ward. 

Your petitioner, therefore, prays that your 
Honorable Body may order an investigation 
of said election, and the qualifications of said 
Butler to hold said office of Alderman of said 
City of Chicago for said Twenty-seventh 
Ward; that the time and place may be fixed 
bv vour Honorable Body for taking evidence 



upon the questions presented by this petition, 
and that a full, fair and impartial hearing 
may be had in the premises; and that upon 
such hearing, that if the said Butler shall not 
appear to be qualified to hold said office, and 
to have been legally elected thereto, by a full 
majority of the votes of said Twenty-seventh 
Ward,thatyourHonorableBody may oust said 
Butler from said office, and that your peti- 
tioner may be declared to have been legally 
elected to said office of Alderman of the 
Twenty-seventh Ward, at said election held 
on April 5th, 1898.

The following contest: 

Chicago. April 11th. 1898. 

^The City Council, City of Chicago : 

Your petitioner, Henry Winter, respect- 
fully represents that he is a citizen of the 
United States, and of the State of Illinois: 
that he is a qualified elector in the Sixteenth 
Ward of the City of Chicago, in Cook Coun- 
ty, in said State : that he resides in said ward 
now, and has resided in said ward continu- 
ously from the year 1875. until this date, and 
has been a qualified elector in said ward con- 
tinuously from the year 1876, until this date ; 
that he is not now, nor never has been in 
arrears in the payment of any tax or other 



April 11,]

liability to the city : that he is not now nor 
never has been directly or indirectly inter- 
ested in any contract whatever, to which the 
city is a party ; that he has never been con- 
victed of malfeasance, bribery or other cor- 
rupt practices or crimes; that he does not 
now hold or has he ever held any office under 
the City Government, and that he is not 
either directly or indirectly, individually, or 
as a member of a firm engao:ed in any busi- 
ness transaction with said city. 

Petitioner further represents that he is 
eligible to the office of Alderman of the Six- 
teenth Ward in said city, and was eligible to 
election to said office on the 5th day of April. 
A. D. 1898. 

Petitioner further represents that he was, 
on the 19th day of March, regularly nomin- 
ated for the office of Alderman, for one year, 
of the Sixteenth Ward, in said City of Chi- 
cago, to fill the vacancy caused by the death 
of Henry Ludolph, who had been duly elected 
and qualified as Alderman of said ward in 
April, 1897; that petitioner was so regularly 
nominated by a convention of the Democratic 
party of said Sixteenth Ward, held in pur- 
suance of law, and in accordance with the 
statute in such case made and provided. 

That petitioner's name as such candidate 
of said Democratic party was duly certified 
by the Democratic County Central Committee 
of said party to the Board of Election Com- 
missioners of said City of Chicago, and by 
said Board was duly caused to be printed on 
the official ballot prepared by the said Board 
for the election of certain town officers and 
Aldermen in said city on the 5th day of April, 
1898. 

That on said 5th day of April, 1898, an 
election for Alderman, for the term of one 
year, to fill the vacancy in the Sixteenth 
Ward of said city, caused as aforesaid, was 
had, and that at said election petitioner was 
the regular Democratic candidate for election 
for said office. 

Petitioner further repre.sents that at said 
election the name of one John F. Smulski, 
whcse eligibility for said office is unknown to 
your petitioner, appeared on said ballot as 
the Republican candidate for said office. 

That the judges and clerks of election of 
said Sixteenth Ward made alleged returns 
of the votes cast at said election to said Boara 
of Election Commissioners, and that these 
pretended returns show the following vote 
for said office: For said John F. Smulski, 



3,425 votes ; for your petitioner, 3,347 votes, 
and for one Field, 44 votes. 

That petitioner is informed that said John 
F. Smulski has obtained from the County 
Clerk of said county the purported certificate 
of election to said office of Alderman, and 
that said Smulski is about to present the 
same to your Honorable Body. 

Petitioner further represents that said 
Smulski did not receive a plurality of legal 
votes cast at said election for said office, and 
that petitioner did receive a plurality of legal 
votes cast at said election for said office. 

That votes cast foryour petitioner were not 
counted for your petitioner, and that votes 
cast for your petitioner were counted for said 
Smulski, and that your petitioner was legally 
elected to said office of Alderman. 

Petitioner further represehts that the pur- 
ported plurality of said Snulski, as shown by 
said alleged returns of said judges and clerks 
of election, is 76. 

Petitioner further represents that the said 
alleged returns do not snow the legal vote 
cast for the different candidates for .said office 
and petitioner further represents that a count 
of the legal votes cast at the said election 
will show that your petitioner was legally 
elected to said office. 

Petitioner further shows that the judges 
and clerks of election in divers precincts of 
the said ward received and counted illegal 
votes and that the judges and clerks of elec- 
tion in divers precincts refused to allow 
legally qualified voters to vote for your peti- 
tioner. 

Your petitioner represents that the number 
of illegal votes cast in said ward was a large 
number— to-wit, 12 votes, and that the same 
were cast against your petitioner and for said 
Smulski, and that the number of votes cast 
foryour petitioner and not counted for him 
was a large number— to-wit, 182 votes, and 
that the same were cast for said Smulski; 
that the number of votes refused by the said 
judges and clerks of the said election was a 
large number— to-wit, 10 votes, and that the 
same would have l»een cast for your peti- 
tioner, if same were allowed to be cast. 

Petitioner further represents that the dis- 
crepancy in the alleged sum of the votes in 
the different precincts for your i»etitioncr and 
said Smulski, and in the total number of votes 
cast is a large one— to-wit, 500, and petitioner 
is informed and believes that if the votes of 
the different precincts were counted by your

PORATION, y 

21, 1898. \ 



Jlr. John Ericson, City Engineer: 

Dear Sir — Your communication of the 
19th inst., enclosing copies of correspondence 
between the Commissioner of Public Works 
and the C, B. & Q. R. R. Co., relative to the 
maintenance and repairs of viaducts over said 
company's tracks, is before me. 

It appears that in his letter of October 21st, 
1897, to the President of said railroad com- 
pany, the Commissioner referred to an ordi- 
nance passed by the City Council May 6, 
1872, and that the Vice-President of said 
company, in answer, says that he can- 
not find any such ordinance. I presume that 
the Commissioner referred to an ordinance 
concerning the La Salle and Chicago Rail- 
road Company, now the Chicago and Great 
Western Railroad Company, Section 4 of 
which provides for the construction of via- 
ducts by that cor])oration, in conjunction evi- 
dently with the Chicago, Burlington and 
Quincy Railroad Company. 

Commissioner McGann also refers to the 
ordinance of December 20, 1880. I find on 
reference to Section 3 of that ordinance, 
which is entitled. "An ordinance granting 
permisssion to the Chicago, Burlington and 
Quincy Railroad Company to construct tracks 
between West Harrison and West Twelfth 
streets," it is provided that ''the permission 
and authority granted are upon the further 
express condition that the said railroad com- 
pany shall pay to the City of Chicago the ex- 
pense of constructing, erecting, maintaining 
and keeping in repair viaducts over any of 
its said tracks, on any street or streets crossed 
by its taacks, except said Polk street, above 
provided for, with proper approaches thereto, 
as the City Council may from time to time 
require." 

I do not think the Ciiicago, Burlington and 
Quincy Railroad Company can be re(|uircd to 
do this unless bj' ordinance or resolution 
made by tlie City Council. In other words, 
1 think further legislation on the part of the 



April 11, 



20 



[1898, 



City Council is requisite before the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works can legitimately re- 
quire that company to maintain and keep in 
repair any other viaducts over its tracks than 
the viaduct on Polk street. I think this is 
substantially the position as to the Chicago 
and Northwestern Railway Company. 

I would suggest, therefore, that you con- 
fer with Mr. Hill, who will further investi- 
gate the matter with your assistance and 
prepare the necessary ordinance or ordinances. 

Very truly yours. 
(Signed) Chas. S. Thornton, 

Co7'poration Counsel. 

Which was referred to the Committee on 
Streets and Alleys, W. D. 

Aid. Cullerton arose and stated that he 
thought at this stage of the proceedings the 
Council should take some action toward the 
selection of standing Committees, inasmuch 
as the Council was referring matters to Com- 
mittees when in reality there were no Stand- 
ing Committees. 

POINT OF OEDER. 

Aid. Maltby rose to a point of order, his 
point of order being that the Council being a 
continuous body, the Standing Committees of 



the last Council would be the Committees of 
the present Council until new Standing Cora- 
inittees were selected. 

The Chair decided the point of order well 
taken. 

Thereupon, Aid. Cullerton appealed from 
the decision of the Chair. 

The question being, shall the decision of 
the Chair stand as the iudgment of this Coun- 
cil.

PETITIONS. COMMUNICATIONS AND ORDI- 
NANCES. 

By consent Aid. Maltby presented a reso- 
lution on the death of Ex-Ald. P. S. Wet- 
terer and moved its adoption by a rising- vote. 

The motion prevailed unanimously. 

The following: is the resolution as adopted: 

Whekeas, Death has removed from our 
midst our esteemed fellow-citizen, Ex-Ald. 
P. S. Wetterer. 

Whekeas, He was an honorable citizen 
and faithful and efficient public official. 

Resolved, That the City Council tender to 
the bereaved family of the deceased its heart- 
felt sympathy in their sore distress and 
affliction, 

Jhmlvc.a, That the City Clerk Is hereby di- 
rected to spread upon the journal of the 
Council these resolutions, and that a copy 
suitably eng-rossed be sent to the family of 
the deceased. 

By consent, Aid. Maltby presented the fol- 
lowing ordinance: 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City 

of Chicago: 

Section 1. Tliat the Mayor be and is 
hereby authorized and empowered to name 
and appoint the chairmen and members of 
all standing committees of the City Council. 

Sec. 3. Tluit all ordinances or parts of 
ordinances conflicting witli this ordinance 
are hereby repealed. 

Aid. Mclnerney moved the reference of the 
ordinance to tlie Committee on Rules. 

I'OINT OF OHDEK. 

Aid. Cullerton rose to a point of order, his 
point of order beinp that the Council had no 
rules at the present time unless rules of com- 
mon parliamentary practice, and that the 



ordinance could not be refered to a commit- 
tee except by a majority vote of the Council. 

The Chair declined to rule on Aid. Culler- 
ton's point of order as he was not strictly in 
order as Aid. Maltbv still retained the floor 
for the purpose of speaking: to the ordinance. 

Thereupon Aid. Miller moved to lay the 
motion of Aid. Mclnerney on the table. 

The Chair decided this motion out of or- 
der, as any one member of the Council could 
demand reference to a Committee, which 
reference would have to be complied with by 
the Council, unless the rules were suspended, 
and that the rules adopted ten)porarily last 
year were still the rules under which the pres- 
ent Council was working, until new rules 
were adopted. 

Thereupon, Aid. Cullerton appealed from 
the decision of the Chair in so far as the 
same related to the working; of the Council 
under certain rules. 

The question being, shall the decision of 
the Chair stand as the judgment of this 
Council.

Aid. Cuilerton presciiteil the following 
resolution : 

WiiEUKAs, The late decision of His Honor, 
Judge Arba N. Waterman, in the Criminal 
Court of Cook County, in the case of the 
People vs. E. S. Dreyer. In relation to the 
custodianship of public funds and (luashing 



April 18,J 



64 



the indictment against said Dreyer for hav- 
ing allowed the conversion of $319,000.00 of 
West Park Funds, by personal deposit in 
"bank, opens the way to a question of direct 
responsibility for the safety of all public 
funds; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago at all times 
has the approximate sum of $3,000,000 on hand 
and it has been and continues to be the uni- 
form practice of the City Council to insert in 
the annual appropriation bill a clause which 
allows, and practically requires, the City 
Treasurer to loan the city's money out at in- 
terest, creating thereby, under Judge Water- 
man's decision, an unprotected liability, mak- 
ing the Treasurer a mere debtor to the city, 
without reference to his personal bond ; and. 

Whereas, The City Council by recogniz- 
ing,"^ permitting and requiring interest on the 
city's funds creates a condition and predica- 
ment similar to that in which the West Park 
Commissioners find themselves, and still more 
open, in that the Act of 1893, requiring in- 
terest on public funds, is now repeated, and 
inasmuch as the said decision of Judge 
Waterman holds, further, that in the absence 
of any inhibitory statute, a public custodian 
or Treasurer may in his own name make a 
general deposit in the banks of monies be- 
longing to the public, and, by the terms of 
said decision, title to the money actually de- 
posited passes to the depository, a pressing 
and urgent necessity is created for a direct 
bond and liability from said bank or banks 
or depository ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Law Department 
be and is hereby directed to report to the 
City Council without delay an ordinance 
designating the banks in which the city's 
money is at present deposited as city deposi- 
tories, to the end that such banks or deposi- 
tories be required to furnish the city as well 
as the Treasurer with a good and sufficient 
bond. 

Which was, after debate, referred to the 
Committee on Finance. 

Aid. CuUerton presented the following 
order : 

Ordered, That the Comptroller be and is 
hereby directed to forthwith cause all public

Which was, on motion, duly passed. 



Aid. Miller presented a petition and an order 
for improving West 17th street, from Rock-

Chicago, April 14th, 1898. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor of the City of 
Chicago and the City Coimcil : 

Gentlemen-— In accordance with the direc- 
tions of the Board of County Commissioners, 
I have the honor to present herewith a tran- 
script of a resolution passed by the County 
Board which has as its object a conference 
Ijetween the city and county authorities for 
the purpose of securing- an adeciuate county 
buildings The County Board has appointed 
a committee and authorized it to treat, with 
the city authorities, relative to the erection 
of a new court house and city hall on the site 
of the present building;, or, failing in this, to 
arrive at terms, if po.ssible, by which the city 
will vacate the building now being occupied 
as a city hall, in order that it may be used for 
the increasing needs of our courts. The 
question is one which demands an immediate 
solution, and the County Board, by resolution, 
urges the city authorities to appoint a special 
committee to confer with the County Board 
on the subject. I would respectfully pre- 
sent the resolution and ask a favorable con- 
sideration thereof, on the part of the Mayor 
and Common Council, at the earliest possible 
nionient. 

Very respectfully, 

I). D. Heai.y, 
Preaiilejit Connty Hoard. 



WiiEKEAs, The present Court House is in- 
adequate to the needs of the County by rea- 
son of lack of space required for the ollicials 



of Cook County who should be provided for 
within it, thereby greatly impeding the work 
of some of the officials by depriving them of 
room necessary for their work and making it 
obligatory upon the County Board to p"ro- 
vide and pay for quarters outside of the 
Court House, for some of the Judges, at a 
constant expense to the County; and 

Whereas, Such a condition requires some 
immediate action in the interest of the peo- 
ple of this County, to the end that public 
business be expedited and the safety and 
comfort of the whole people protected ; there- 
fore, be it 

lic^olved, That the President of the County 
Board be and he is hereby empowered and di- 
rected to appoint a committee of live mem- 
bers of this Board, whose duty it shall be to 
confer with a like committee, appointed by 
direction of the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, for the purpose of suggesting some 
agreement between the government of the 
City of Chicago and the government of Cook 
County upon the following lines: 

1. Whether the City of Chicago will va- 
cate the building. now being occupied as a 
City Hall and turn the same over to the 
County of Cook for the needs of said County. 

2. Whether the City of Chicago will pay 
half the cost of erecting a new Court House 
and City Hall upon the present site and to 
determine the cost thereof and provide for 
submitting to the peoole a proposition au- 
thorizing the issue of bonds to defray the 
cost of the same. 

3. Whether it is more advisable to build 
additional stories to the present Court House 
or extend the walls and build additional 
rooms up to the height of the present build- 
ing and to determine the cost thereof and 
provide for sulxnitting to the people a prop- 
osition authorizing the issuing of bonds to 
defray the cost of same. 

Jiexolved, That a copy of these resolutions 
be forwarded to His Honor, Carter H. Har- 
rison, Mayor of Chicago, and a copy io the 
Chicago City Council, and that their co-op- 
eration and assistance be requested by tno 
appointment of the joint committee hereto- 
fore mentioned. 

h'rsohu-d. That if sahl committee be ap- 
|)Ouited by the City of Chicago, that the Com- 
mittee of this Board report back its conclu- 
sions at the earliest practicable occasion..

The following election contest: 

State of Illinois, ) 
County of Cook. Iss, 
City of Chicago. ) 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago : 

Your petitioner, Dan B. Jesse, of the City 
of Chicago, County of Cook and State of Illi- 
nois, respectfully rcspresents unto your Hon- 
orable Body that hi; was a regular nominee 
by and of the Democratic p.irty for the oHice 
of Alderman of the City of Chicago for the 
Thirty-first ward of said city, at the election 
held on the fifth clay of April, ISDS; that his 
name was upon the ofiicial ballot as such 
nominee for such office under the heading of 



"Alderman." That one Joseph Badenoch 
was the regular nominee, for such office, of 
the Republican party; that one Joseph Wan- 
hope was the regular nominee of the Social- 
ist labor party, and that the names of all of 
said persons, together with that of your peti- 
tioner, appeared upon the official ballot as 
candidates for said office. 

Your petitioner further represents unto 
your Honorable Body that said Joseph Bad- 
enoch has obtained from the County Clerk of 
Cook County a certificate of election as Al- 
derman for said Thirt^'-first ward of said City 
of Chicago, and in pursuance of said certifi- 
cate has taken his seat as a member of your 
Honorable Body as said Alderman of said 
Thirty-first ward. 

Your petitioner states upon credible in- 
formation and belief, which he believes to be 
true, that said Joseph Badenoch did not ob- 
tain at said election for Alderman of the 
Thirty-first ward of said City of Chicago on 
said fifth day of April, 1898, a plurality 
of all the legal votes cast at said election 
upon said day aforesaid for such office of 
Alderman of the Thirty-first Ward aforesaid, 
and that a recount of the votes cast at said 
election will show that your petitioner was 
legally elected Alderman of the City of Chi- 
cago for the Thirty-first Ward at said election. 

Your petitioner further represents upon 
credible information and belief, which 
he believes to be true, that while the can- 
vass of the returns for said election for Al- 
derman of the Thirty-first Ward by the Can- 
vassing Board of the City of Chicago 
showed, and said Canvassing Board an- 
nounced as a result thereof, that said Joseph 
Badenoch received three thousand and eighty- 
one (3,081 1 votes, and your petitioner received 
two thousand nine hundred and ten (2,910) 
votes, and said Joseph Wanhope received 
seventy (70) votes at said election for said 
oQice of Alderman for the Thirty-first Ward, 
aforesaid, yet in truth, and in fact, your 
petitioner was elected lo said olfice by a plu- 
rality of more than one thousand (1.000) 
votes overpaid Joseph Badenoch. 

Your petitioner further shows unto your 
Honorable Body, up:m credible information 
and belief, which he belleres to be true, that 
in many of the election precincts of said 
Thirty-first Ward of said City of Chicago, a 
large number of votes, to-wit, one thousand, 
were counted by the judges and clerks of 
said election precincts in .said ward for said 



May 2,J 



66 



[1S98. 



Joseph Badenoch for said office of Alderman 
of said ward which should have been counted 
in some cases for your petitioner, in other cases 
for said Joseph Wanhope. That in many of 
said election precincts, particularly in the 
first and thirty-first precincts of said Thirty- 
first Ward, a large number of votes, to-wit, 
one thousand (1,000), were counted by said 
judges and clerks of said election precincts 
for said Joseph Badenoch for the ofiice of 
Alderman, which should have been thrown 
out by the judges and clerks of election, and 
not counted for either or any of the 
candidates for said office; that said 
votes so counted for said Joseph 
Badenoch, which should have been counted 
for your petitioner, or for said Joseph Wan- 
hope, and other votes which were counted 
for said Joseph Badenoch, as aforesaid, 
which should not have been counted for 
either of the candidates for said office, as 
aforesaid, were sufficient in number to over- 
come the said alleged plurality for said 
Joseph Badenoch by the canvassing board as 
aforesaid, and would have shown a plurality 
of votes in favor of your petitioner of more 
than two hundred . (200) votes over said 
Joseph Badenoch. 

Your petitioner further represents unto 
your Honorable Body, upon credible infor- 
mation and belief, which he believes to be 
true, that in the first precinct of said Thirty- 
first ward a large number of votes, to-wit, 
one hundred and fifty (150) votes, were 
counted by the judges and clerks of said 
election precinct for said Joseph Badenoch, 
which should have been counted for said 
Dan B. Jesse, your petitioner. 

Your petitioner further represents that in 
many of the other election precincts of said 
Thirty-first ward a large number of votes, 
to-wit, one thousand (1,000) votes, were 
counted by said judges and clerics of election 
for said Joseph Badenoch which should have 
been counted for said Joseph Wanhope. 

Your petitioner further represents unto 
your Honorable Body that in each of the 
other precincts of said Thirty-first Ward a 
large number of votes, to-wit, one thousand 
(1,000) votes, were counted by the said 
judges and clerks of election for said Joseph 
Badenoch and Joseph Wanhope which 
should have been counted for your petitioner. 

Your petitioner therefore prays that your 
Honorable Body may order a recount of 
ballots cast for Alderman in all of the 



precincts of the Thirty-first Ward of said 
City of Chicago on the fifth day of April, 
1898, for the office of Alderman of said City 
of Chicago of the Thirty-first Ward and that 
your petitioner be permitted to present to 
your Honorable Body the evidence showing 
that your petitioner was legally elected a& 
Alderman of the City of Chicago for the 
Thirty-first Ward at the election held in said 
Ward on the fifth day of April, 1S98; and 
your petitioner alleges the fact to be that a 
recount .of the votes lawfully and legally 
cast at the said election for Alderman of the 
Thirty-first Ward of the City of Chicago on 
the fifth day of April, 1898, will show that 
your petitioner, Dan B. Jesse, received a 
plurality of all the votes then and there cast, 
and that he, your petitioner, was legally 
elected Alderman from said Thirty-first Ward 
at the said election and is now entitled to his 
seat as such; that if it shall appear by the 
evidence as presented to your Honorable 
Body that your petitioner was legally elected 
Alderman of the City of Chicago for the 
Thirty-first Ward at the said election held on 
the fifth day of April, 1898, in said Ward, 
that your petitioner may be declared by your 
Honorable Body to be the person who was 
legally elected to such office of Alderman of 
the City of Chicago for the term of two years, 
and that said Joseph Badenoch be declared to 
have been illegally seated as Alderman of the 
City of Chicago for the said Thirty-first 
Ward, and that he, the said Joseph Badenoch, 
be ousted from said office of Alderman and 
the same be declared by your Honorable 
Body to belong to your petitioner ; and that 
upon the filing of this petition in the office of 
the City Clerk of the City of Chicago it be 
considered by your Honorable Body that 
your petitioner contests the election of said 
Joseph Badenoch as Alderman of the City 
of Chicago for the Thirty-first Ward, which 
office he now unjustly and illegally holds; 
and that your petitioner, by the filing of this 
petition, intends to and does contest the 
election of said Joseph Badenoch to said 
office of Alderman of the City of Chicago for 
the Thirty-first Ward.

May 2d, 1898. ) 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and City Coimcil: 

Gentlemen— On the 16th day of last March 
a fire occurred at 215-221 Wabash avenue, 
which resulted in the collapse of the build- 
ing, and great loss of life ensued. The 
calamity startled the community, and human- 
ity and the friends of the victims demanded 
that steps be taken at once to secure the re- 
mains of the unfortunate people who lost 
their lives. 

Upon the request of the Fire Marshal and 
the order of the Mayor the Department of 
Public Works proceeded to give such assist- 
ance as was possible immediately after the 
collapse of the building and expended in 
doing so the sum of Sl,151.70. A week or so 
after, while the work was being vigorously 
prosecuted by the Department, Messrs. 
Smoot & Eyer, attorneys for Frederick Ayer, 
the owner of the building, notified the city 
that they had made arrangements with the 
Oriental Wrecking Company for removing 
the ruins of the building. A bill was ren- 
dered for the amount expended to Smoot & 
Eyer, who declined to pay the same. I be- 
lieve steps should be taken to collect the 
amount and would suggest the passage of 
the accompanying order. 

Respectfully submitted,

Chicago, June 11th, 1894. 

Whereas. It is rumored that there is a 
movement on foot to get an ordinance 
passed for an electric railroad on Lake ave- 
nue; and, 

Whereas, There is no need of a railroad of 
any kind on Lake avenue, there being within 
100 yards of said avenue the Illinois Central 
Railroad, with all the complete facilities for 
carrying passengers, which Avas thoroughly 
demonstrated during the World's Fair; and, 

Whereas, A railroad of any kind would 
ruin Lake avenue as a residence street, the 
same being now one of the most beautiful in 
Chicago. 

Hesolved. That we, the property owners on 
said Lake avenue, Hyde Park, assembled at 
this meeting, do hereby strongly protest 



against any effort to obtain such an ordi- 
nance, and we hereby pledge ourselves to 
fight against any and all schemes to con- 
struct any kind of railroad on said Lake 
avenue. 

And we, the undersigned property owners 
on Lake avenue, do hereby agree to and with 
each other until five years from the date 
hereof that we will not at any time, now or 
hereafter, until five years from the date 
hereof, sign any petition, paper, agreement 
or release of any easement, to any corpora-

Aid. Bigane presented the following

To the Honorable Carter H. Harrison, JIayor, 
and the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

Whereas, The City of Chicago at the 
present time furnishes water for public and 
private use to the city and its citizens at a 
cost which, to say the least, is not excessive, 
and from the revenue raised from that 
source annually, is capable of extending the 
supply, and also providing better means of 
giving a full supply to every resident at an 
expense which is merely nominal, payable, as 
it is. semi-annually: and after paying for all 
improvements and necessary repairs, and car- 
rying on the whole work in connection there- 
with, the revenue raised in the City of 
Chicago from that source exceeds the expen- 
ditures in the sum of one million five hundred 
thousand dollars annually. Miks of pipes 
are laid annually into new territory and tun- 
nels extended and carried out farther and 
farther into the lake year after year; and the 
increase in revenue grows apace until more 
than 826.000,000 worth of permanent improve- 
ments are made and owned by the City of 



Hay 2,]

Chicago. Hundreds of thousands of dollars 
are now to be expended in protecting: the 
water supply from pollution, and yet the 
water tax is not burdensome; and all this 
work is carried on and benefits received by 
the people because there is in force on the 
Statute Books of the State of Illinois three 
paragraphs known as Sections 175, l?6i and 
177 of the Cities and Villages Act, Article 10, 
Chapter 24, Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Re- 
vised Statutes. Said sections grant the pow- 
ers necessary to City Councils and Boards of 
Trustees of Villages to carry on the work of 
supplying water for public and private use at 
a rate that is in the reach of all to pay. 

. Whereas, Millions of dollars are invested 
in public parks annually, taxes are levied for 
their maintenance and improvement, in order 
-that residents of this great metropolis should 
have the advantages of pure air. And a 
whole chapter of legislation is enacted for 
the purpose of empowering Park Commis- 
rSioners to carry on this great work, i. e.. 
Chapter 105 of the Revised Statutes of 
Illinois. All this law is in force, and the 
people receiving the benefits of the law. 
Pure water and pure air is furnished at cost 
to them, because laws are in force empower- 
ing the municipal corporations having them 
in charge to operate them for the people at 
cost. 

Can we obtain a little legislation that will 
give the people of this city, and other places, 
-the power to obtain an article just as useful, 
just as necessary and just as beneficial to 
mankind as air and water, at cost? It can be 
done if we ask and insist upon it. 

Year after year this city grows more in 
.debt for gas light ; so that as a last resort out- 
lyinff districts are deprived of even the 
necessary street lamps at night. The mem- 
bers of the City Council are met at the 
threshold of the meeting chamber and com- 
manded under penalty of law to appropriate . 
money to pay judgments in favor of trust 
companies organized to reap not only a 
benefit from furnishing light to the city, but 
also a I'ich harvest annually from consumers. 
We provide water because we are empowered 
to do so by the laws of the State. We pro- 
vide places where the poor and the rich alike 
can obtain fresh air in our parks, because we 
have laws empowering the properly author- 
ized officers to prepare, maintain and improve 
our park systeu). Will the legislature of 
this great State refuse to empower 



the proper authorities the means 
of procuring light for public and 
private use at cost. If the subject and fig- 
ures and facts are properly laid before the 
Legislature of this State they will gladly aid 
the municipalities and their constituents. If 
the power is a-ranted full and complete the 
money will be furnished at once by public 
spirited citizens on bonds payable out of re- 
ceipts, for the erection of plants and for the 
extension of gas and electric light. 

A committee is needed to prepare and pre- 
sent the subject to other municipalities and 
to the State Legislature; therefore, be it 

Beaolved, That a committee of ten be ap- 
pointed. His Honor, the Mayor, as Chair- 
man, and nine others to be selected by the 
Mayor as follows: Two from the North 
Side, three from the South Side, and four 
from the West Side. Said committee to 
fully investigate the subject of lighting 
cities, towns and villages with gas and elec- 
tric light, same to be furnished by municip- 
alities for public and private use, and to pro- 
cure such legislation as will be needed to em- 
power municipalities to operate and maintain 
gas and electric light plants, and furnish 
light at such rates and under such rules and 
regulations as may be established by ordi- 
nance by said municipalities.

The following communication from the 
Business Agent. 

May 9th, 1898. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor aticl City Coioncil: 

Gentlemen — At a meeting of your Honor- 
able Body held May 2nd an order was passed 
requiring the Business Agent to report to the 
Council within two weeks "a complete list of 
all purchases made by him for the various 
departments of the City of Chicago, together 
with the prices paid therefor, from whom 
purchased and upon what dates, beginning 
June 1st, 1897." 

I beg leave to report that this work will in- 
volve transcribing from the purchase regis- 
ters, approximately twenty thousand items. 
If published in Council Proceedings the re- 
port will cover about three hundred and fifty 
pages. The preparation of this report would 
probably occupy one clerk's full time for at 
least six weeks. The fact that the purchase 
registers are in use constantly makes it im- 
possible to have the work of transcribing go 
on without interruption and therefore the 
preparation of the report w^ill require more 
time than would otherwise be needed. Fur- 
thermore, the clerical force in the Depart- 
ment of Supplies is only able to take care of 
work in hand from day to day, and by the 
utmost diligence, and by working beyond 
regular hours. 

I beg leave to ask, therefore, that your Hon- 
orable Body will not only extend the time 
allowed for the preparation of the report or- 
dered, but that you will provide a way to en- 



May 9,] 

able the Business Agent to employ extra 
clerical help for the purpose. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Irving Washington, 
Bicsiness Afjeut. 
Which was placed on file. 

In connection with the foregoing communi- 
cation Aid. Fitch moved that the order 
calling for the report mentioned therein be 
rescinded. 

The motion prevailed. 

The Commissioner of Public Works sub- 
mitted the following list of assessment rolls :
